How to Wear - Pleated Maxi Skirts ♥

1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.
I'm currently hiding in my bedroom because I've stolen the last bit of the cranberry dad is going to KILL me. He is rather fond of cranberry juice, how healthy haha. Besides from stealing juice, I've had a pretty lazy day today, I'm taking full advantage of the bank holiday and I've caught up on much needed sleep and listened to Fleetwood Mac for quite a while now. My best friend Harry is coming round in apparently 7 minutes to watch some Inbetweeners or Essex - he sounds exactly like Mark Wright which is slightly creepy at times haha. How have you spent these past few days? I've finally bidded on a leather pleated skirt, I have a horrible fear it will rise up to £50 though :S It was only £14 when it was being sold in the shop! -_- My plans for this week include seeing The Dictator with Harry (with nachos), shopping and going to work. It'll be my second week at Red magazine! It's already going too quickly :( Anyway, I thought I would do my version of how I would wear maxi skirts. I am dying to find a bright fuchsia pink one - I've looked everywhere but I can't find it!

I think they look absolutely gorgeous and are very classy. I found this skirt for £18 from Tesco's so I'm tempted to treat myself - isn't it lovely? I've done two looks for this, one is what I'd wear during the day and the second one is more of a evening look. I really, really want to buy a big floppy hat for this summer and the one I've picked goes perfectly with this outfit. It's slightly bohemian so it's not my usual style. I'll admit it - I saw Kim Kardashian wearing one. She makes floppy hats look good okay?! It's not my fault if she persuades me! I really like the belt between the crop top to structure it more, it's a gorgeous belt and is definitely a wardrobe essential. For the next look, I wanted it to be subtly glam. I think the skirt makes a big enough statement as it is, so the white bralet brings the right amount of glamour to the look without it being too much. This would be a pefect outfit for a bar or date. I know it's slightly hot for the leather jacket but hey - we all know I love my leather items. Although it may be hot, its also English weather and we all know how "predictable" that can be... I couldn't find the exact link for the Mango leather jacket so I found another Mango one which looks pretty similar. Anyway, I can hear Harry's car now so I shall post tomorrow with a June Wish List! Have a good bank holiday girls. ♥
